Review:

“Despite only five suspects, Mrs Christie as usual puts a ring through the reader’s nose and leads him to one of her smashing last-minute showdowns.” Observer

“The answer to the riddle is brilliant.” Times Literary Supplement

“A brilliant piece of detective fiction, in which character plays an important part.” Daily Telegraph

“Straightforward bamboozling from start to finish.” New Statesman

“As usual, Mrs Christie hoaxes us with a double twist at the denouement, and provides excellent entertainment.” Punch

“Agatha Christie never fails us, and her Five Little Pigs presents a very pretty problem for the ingenious reader.” Manchester Guardian

From the Back Cover:

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Gree (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried 'wee wee wee' all the way home.

It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind...

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

"Mrs Christie as usual puts a ring through the reader's nose and leads him to one of her smashing last-minute showdowns."
